The purpose of this study is to investigate the role of shape and texture in the classification of hepatic fibrosis by selecting the optimal parameters for a better Computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system. 10 surface shape features are extracted from a standardized profile of liver; while15 texture features calculated from gray level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM) are extracted within an ROI in liver. Each combination of these input subsets is checked by using support vector machine (SVM) with leave-one-case-out method to differentiate fibrosis into two groups: normal or abnormal. The accurate rate value of all 10/15 types number of features is 66.83% by texture, while 85.74% by shape features, respectively. The irregularity of liver shape can demonstrate fibrotic grade efficiently and texture feature of CT image is not recommended to use with shape feature for interpretation of cirrhosis.
